Key Economic News:
Claims for jobless benefits fell last week, a sign the labor market is improving. Applications for unemployment insurance payments dropped by 12,000 to 367,000 in the week ended Jan. 28, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 46 economists in a Bloomberg News survey projected 371,000. Companies are slowing the pace of firing as the world’s largest economy picks up, a necessary step toward bigger gains in employment. Economists forecast a Labor Department report tomorrow may show employers boosted payrolls in January and the jobless rate held at an almost three-year low. Jobless claims were projected to decrease from 377,000 initially reported for the prior week, according to the Bloomberg survey. Estimates ranged from 360,000 to 384,000. The Labor Department revised the previous week’s figure up to 379,000.
Those who’ve used up their traditional benefits and are now collecting emergency and extended payments increased by about 43,100 to 3.5 million in the week ended Jan. 14.
Productivity Rises. The measure of worker output per hour increased at a 0.7 percent annual rate, following a 1.9 percent gain in the prior three-month period. Expenses per employee climbed at a 1.2 percent rate after falling 2.1 percent in the third quarter.
With unemployment coming just under expectations, and the dollar improving. I would expect the market to hold.
My position on MBS stays long.
